Daily Dispatch's digital dividend

You’d have to be insane to invest in interactive storytelling in South Africa. Web staff and new digital journalists need special skills; multimedia storytelling is time consuming and expensive; and – in an environment where online ad revenue and local connectivity is relatively low – returns (financial or users) are hardly guaranteed.

But the Daily Dispatch of East London is crazy. Like a fox – crazy.
